In the Classroom
- thank you (8/13/2015)Dear Mitch, Thank you for sharing your friendship, your relationship, with Morrie. I have often described this book to others by comparing it to a roller coaster, because the first time I read it I felt as if I was laughing one moment, then crying the next. I so loved this small powerful book that […]
- Thank you (5/6/2015)Thank you for recognizing educators across this great country. I have taught hundreds first graders over the course of 28 years as a public school teacher. It has been an honor and priviledge to teach all of these children to love reading and become, hopefully, lifetime readers. The past 3 years my challenge has been […]
- Teaching Life’s Lessons to Seniors (5/1/2015)I really enjoy my students’ reactions to reading “Tuesdays with Morrie,” which I have now taught for over ten years. Years later, I still receive “thank you” messages on Facebook from former students for introducing them to this powerful little book. Thank you so much for your friendship with Morrie!

On Friday they chose if they were a superhero.Many wanted to fly, some wanted to defeat the bad guys and others had many super powers.

Dear Treasured Educators:
I want to thank you for all you do for our young students. As you may know, I was lucky enough to share a special relationship with a wonderful teacher, Morrie Schwartz, and it literally changed my life. Thanks to educators like you, future generations will have their lives shaped and changed. And I am honored that in doing so, some of you are sharing the lessons of my old professor as well.
As I’ve travelled across the country, I’ve been delighted to learn of the many high schools, junior high schools, religious schools and universities that are using my books as teaching tools. I’m incredibly flattered and humbled by this and I encourage you to write about your experiences with my books in the classroom by submitting a classroom story to the Teacher’s Corner section. I love receiving mail from classes like yours, and knowing that my old teacher is still, in his way, teaching; this website section is just a small way I can share these wonderful stories with the world.
